As usual, all of the work I feature is free as in freedom. 2 If you're producing or appropriating free cultural work, or, to have a bit more fun with it, "If you're a free cultural worker," consider joining us in the Netizen Federation.
Legal: The music you hear is free to copy, modify, and distribute. Tracks are individually licensed and hyper-links are provided to human-readable summaries of those licenses. If you do use this work, the artists ask that you mention (credit) them by name (Attribution). Most of them also ask that if you do create derivatives of their work and/or incorporate their work into a new work, you license that new work under a similar license to the public (Share Alike aka copyleft). These conditions can be waived by the artist(s) aka author(s) aka creator(s) aka owner(s) of the work for any purpose. Contact the respective creator(s) if you'd like to use their work, but need further and/or more specific permissions. Most of 'em answer their own email.
This program comes with no warranty. If you are engaging in any "new work", which I enthusiastically encourage, be sure to actually read the licenses that correspond to the works your modifying or re-using. The human-readable summaries of the Creative Commons licenses are quite short, and even the "legal code" accessible on the web is quite concise and readable.
Donors names here unless otherwise stated. This week, I am an island. I accept BTC, LTC, Dogecoin, and anything physical. More info...↩
Most selections are slightly altered, modified, and/or mixed with other selections. Many tracks are voiced over. My intent is to compose in the spirit of my inspirations: the diverse variety of terrestrial and Internet radio programming I grew up listening to and continue to consume (more "podcasts" these days, thank heavens). There are certain disc-jockey and pre-produced radio "treatments" we, as a society, have grown accustomed to hearing. These include cross-fades, fade-ins, fade-outs, auto-ducks (as Audacity and I call them), voice-overs, stingers and bumpers that may bleed slightly into primary content, etc. The last thing I intend to do is obscure the authorship of the skilled industrialists whose work I feature, or infringe upon their due credit. If you need details on any of these modifications, feel free to ask me.↩
Leaving this document intact and distributing it alongside the audio should meet all requirements relating to attribution. Re-use of this program DOES NOT REQUIRE attribution of work to or association with Alex O'Brien, Libreyana, or Amateur Zen.↩
